TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The rear-wheel-drive 2011 Dodge Charger lands in an odd spot in the market; it doesn't quite compete with luxury sedans like the BMW 5-Series and Infiniti M, but it has a different layout, sporting pretenses, and a lot more personality than the likes of the Toyota Avalon, Buick Lucerne, or Chevrolet Impala.

The Nissan Maxima has front-wheel drive but is more upscale and stylish inside, with an inspired but not high-performance feel.

For those looking more for comfort but with rear-wheel-drive poise and a true luxury-car feel, the Hyundai Genesis is worth considering, too.

A compromise—and a completely different beast—is the Ford Taurus SHO; with its powerful EcoBoost turbocharged V-6 engine and all-wheel-drive layout, it's more sophisticated but also more expensive.

The Charger R/T is a passionate play in a niche full of milquetoast four-doors. You don't have to wear a mullet to love it and own it.

It's big and reasonably priced, but the 2011 Chevrolet Impala can't match other full-sizers on sex appeal or high-tech features.

The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice.

If you can do without a luxury logo, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis provides performance, features, and comfort—including impressive detailing—to match premium-brand sedans costing much more.

The 2011 Nissan Maxima is no longer primarily a sport sedan; think of it as comfortable and refined first, with its sportiness a bonus, and you’ll be happy.
